I like looking at my sitemeter. It tell me a lot of things about the activities on my blog....
The other day I was looking at it and I noticed that someone googled: Bo*bs Shots and landed in my blog. I followed the referral and found out that when you search that phrase, one of my post titles appears on the first page of the search. I thought that post title was very catchy and pretty funny, and I somehow knew people would land in my blog when they search for that particular word - but somehow upon seeing it actually happen through my sitemeter, I realized that I should not do that again (use those words in my blog). It's just not worth it to take the risk.
In that particular post I wrote, I directed the people who would land from google search to go to a particular site which I provided a link. The person did not go there but went to my other post titled Mother and Daughter. I guess he/she really wanted to check if somewhere in my blog is a "b**bs shots".
I printed the sitemeter page of that particular person so I'd have a record of IP address (just in case) -Now, even more than before, I closely watch my sitemeter. I think it was just really a random search but still, now I am more cautious.
There's a lot of benefits to this sitemeter, and a lot more to on this story that I want to share. Unfortunately, I am (once again) in a rush and can't post more about it. I just wanted to make sure I share this little story with many mommy bloggers out there for caution. Shannon has discussed "safety on the internet" before - I think it's worth re-reading that post. And Speaking of Shannon, this post is a participant to Works For Me Wednesday, so click here if you want to read more tips.
